Is Yue your forname and Haibing your surname? In that case having it
written as

Yue Haibing <yuehaibing@huawei.com>

in the from line as well as in the SOB would be better.

Is this some kernel tree wide change you are submitting patches for or
only for the ca8210 driver? Is there any specific problem you see with
the kmalloc and memcpy code here? To me it looks fine.

The reason I ask is to understand if this is bug fix or a cleanup.

Harry, if you are ok with this one let me know with an Acked-By
